216,000 Television Wall Mounts Recalled Due to Injury Risk
Ergotron Inc. is recalling approximately 216,000 interactive television wall mounts. The weld between the 'VESA' style mounting plate and the mounting ring can fail, allowing the monitor or TV to fall. This poses a risk of injury to bystanders.
The recalled Ergotron interactive wall mounts are adjustable and designed for flat panel displays and televisions. The wall mounts consist of three parts including a wall mount plate for securing the system to the wall, an extendible arm that allows the user to adjust the position of their television in multiple directions, and a monitor plate for securing the arm to the television.
To date, Ergotron has received three reports of the monitor plate separating from the wall mount system. Consumers reported property damage to components of the wall mount unit. No injuries have been reported.
The Ergotron interactive television wall mounts affected by this recall were sold at AAFES, h.h.Gregg, Sam's Club, Walmart and independent retailers nationwide, as well as online from February 2012 to January 2013.
